Description - River King by Hoffman Alice

From the best-selling author of The Dovekeepers, The River King confirms Alice Hoffman as -one of our quirkiest and most interesting novelists- (Jane Smiley, USA Today).People tend to stay in their place in the town of Haddan. The students at the prestigious prep school don't mix with locals; even within the school, hierarchy rules, as freshman and faculty members find out where they fit in and what is expected of them. But when a body is found in the river behind the school, a local policeman will walk into this enclosed world and upset it entirely. A story of surface appearances and the truths submerged below.
